For the Comics Industry, TV Matters More Than Movies

Initially, Preacher was to be a movie. AMC has since ordered a pilot in hopes of making it a series.

Issue 24 of +The Full Bleed is brought to you by The Geek Initiative, a collection of blogs teaming up like Voltron to bring you the best news, reviews, and analysis of genre entertainment.

Today's video issue looks at whether mixed views of the financial results for Avengers: Age of Ultron will have studios cutting back on comic book adaptations, and what it mean for the industry if they do. I also address:
  • The widely-held belief that comic book movies have taken over Hollywood.
  • Why TV is a better form for comic book adaptations, and how publishers are aiding development.
  • What the success of The Flash means for the future of comic book TV projects, including AMC's forthcoming adaptation of the Preacher comic book series from Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon.
